Alan, Hemel Hempstead

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It is nothing special, just a good all-rounder, which would suit most normal uses but not heavy stuff like high end gaming. (If you are into that, you will know what you need anyway, most of us don't have the time or inclination.) Fine for word processing, web browsing, email, software development, some photo editing, and audio recording. Feels fairly solid.
Bad points:
Why, why, why is almost every single laptop these days equipped with a stupidly inadequate screen? 10 years ago you could get 1600*1200, and you NEED those vertical pixels for split-view editing even in Word, now we are stuck with a wider, lower screen and only 1080*768 on everything that is affordable. And, we are stuck with abominable operating systems like Windoze 8, an imbecilic gimmick that is utterly unsuitable for any productive use. OK we can't change any of that, except that I immediately downgraded to Windows 7, which is a million times better, and will be dual booting with Kubunto Linux, so I don't expect to be booting into Windoze very often. So, on the negative side, this machine is just the same as all the others and is amenable to the same fixes, and I use a decent external screen while at home, so it is no worse than any other in the price range or a fair bit more.
